- 0Jan 4 by Angelnurse1I am looking for an online LPN to RN bridge program if anyone has experience with this please let me know. I live in Florida so I need one that is approved by them. Thank you for any information.

- 0Jan 10 by shamrokksI am almost done at Galen. One quarter I didn't have to go on campus at all, one quarter I went once a week, then one Q I went once every other week, one Q I was there a few times a week. It hasn't been anything I didn't expect and nothing is outside of the timeframe they tell you that you will need to be available.
- 0Feb 14 by shamrokksWarning: my first bad experience with Galen but it's a huge one for me! I go to schedule my LAST quarter this week and there are NO weekend clinical spots offered for the online students. This is what we were promised since the program is geared towards working students. I am livid and so far no one is helping me. There is not even an option at all to "choose" anything - instead we all get automatically scheduled for Fridays at Manatee which is all the way in Bradenton, FL.
This is not an option for me since I am the only nurse at my job on Fridays! Even if I did another week day that means I cut my pay by a whole day at work which is not easy to do.
If you're considering Galen for the online bridge program do not listen to the guarantee that you will only have to attend campus or clinicals on weekends or after 5pm Monday-Friday.
